Churton Best End Sauvignon Blanc, Organic, Malborough, New Zealand 2018

Marlborough, New Zealand

CHURTONBEST

Tasting Notes

Churton incorporates 10 distinctive Sauvignon Blanc blocks and we harvest them each separately. In 2017 the Churton Sauvignon Blanc cuveé included eight blocks. Hand harvesting gives us the opportunity to be very selective in the vineyard, a vital process in 2017 where weather conditions were challenging. Our fruit was hand sorted in the winery before a gentle whole bunch pressing. 15% was fermented in a mix of used and new 500 litre French oak barrels with indigenous yeast and some cultured yeast. The balance was fermented and aged in stainless steel. All wine aged on lees for six months prior to blending.
